Cristiane Santos is stripped of the Strikeforce featherweight championship after testing positive for the anabolic steroid stanozolol during the Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal post-fight drug test.  Her victory over Hiroko Yamanaka is overturned by the California State Athletic Commission and ruled a no-contest.

 Contenders are never determined to compete for the vacant Strikeforce women’s featherweight championship.

Strikeforce ceases operations and folds on January 13, 2013 after being purchased by UFC parent company Zuffa and ultimately merged with the UFC.
